Spotlight Author Interview - Maree Ward Russell

Have you had any problems with your free book promotions?

My only experience has been with KDP direct … My goal was to get myself ‘out there’ in terms of people getting to know me. At first it went well with 2000 downloads in the first 2 days. Problem is if you give that many copies away free, there is no incentive to buy and I found I had a slump in sales straight after.
